"b'low" the radar

this week i've been in richmond, staying with a friend and checking out all the great local art. virginia commonwealth university is currently having its annual student exhibition (every spring at the anderson gallery!) and my favorite part of the show is the fashion design section. year after year, vcu fashion design and merchandising student kevin blow has literally "blown" me away (sorry to be so cheesy) with his designs. this year he's a senior and i'd love to have him do a piece for me before he heads off to bigger and better things.

blow's sketching is amazing and his pieces are innovative, though i was surprised to see human hair on one of his pieces (chicken or egg...kevin blow or chris march?) i'm also not a fan of fur, and what he used on his pieces seems to be real, but i can appreciate something without completely endorsing it.

unfortunately blow doesn't seem to have a website, but i'll be sure to let you know if and when he does.
